Civil engineering

Civil engineering deals with the planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance and research of fixed structures and infrastructures such as buildings, highways, bridges, railroads, tunnels, dams and airports. Civil engineering also deals with solutions to problems involving traffic, water supply, sewer, flood control, and the environment.

Civil Engineering is one of the broadest and oldest of the engineering disciplines, extending across many technical specialties. A civil engineer requires not only a high standard of engineering knowledge but also supervisory and administrative skills. Civil Engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of facilities essential to modern life needs. A civil engineer is responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of it.
